Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror

Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror

The dark and brooding Ayakashi is composed of three horror stories: the narration of a young woman named Oiwa who was abandoned and betrayed by the one she truly loved, leading her to curse all who stood in her way; a story of two star-crossed lovers – a human and a forgotten god – and their struggle to have a future together; and the tale of an evil and malicious demon who is haunting and murdering a family for unknown purposes. Though different in animation style and tone, each story shares a similar theme: the darkness of the human heart.

Both Ayatsuri Sakon and Ayakashi have a sense of mystery, dark mood and roots in traditional Japanese culture. If you like these things you'll love both of these shows.

Ayatsuri Sakon and Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror both contain a similar artistic touch in their development, and while Ayatsuri Sakon is more oriented toward the detective-story type of genre, Ayakashi contains similarly engrossing elements within the plot that provides a immensely gripping means of entertainment.

However, viewers may choose to beware of Ayakashi, as it is oriented toward a more mature audience due to the disturbing nature of some aspects of the plot.

Nonetheless, viewers of Ayatsuri Sakon and Ayakashi would enjoy the mutual surreal aspects of the respective works.

Though there are plenty of detective anime out there, Ayatsuri Sakon and Kindaichi are especially alike due to their mutual and exceptionally dark atmosphere. AS leans a bit more towards the supernatural, while Kindaichi is more based on reality; both will appeal to detective anime fans who want something dark.

Both of these series are amazing murder mystery series. They handle one case for around 3 episodes and so each mystery is well-developed and suspenseful. They both deal in murders and the complicated emotions of criminals and detectives. They both have a dark atmosphere and are incredible mystery series.

Both are mystery series that focus on the younger main character. They both showcase strong intellect rather than other traits to solve their crimes as well. Both also use a steady amount of humor and have a light side.

reccaphoenix reccaphoenix says...

Both of these series are detective mysteries, obviously, but more than that they share the element of "participation" - letting the audience guess "who did it."  In Ayatsuri Sakon, this becomes more of a process of elimination as the suspects are picked off one by one, while in Great Detectives it's more deduction.  Though Ayatsuri Sakon is far more "scary," any mystery fan will enjoy it just as much as Great Detectives.

Detective Conan and Ayatsuri Sakon are both whodunnit that focus on a character that investigate over a murder case. Sakon's case are usually more complex and aren't episodic like most of Conan's but they are both enjoyable by anyone who like these detective Anime.

Ayatsuri Sakon and Spiral are both fantastic detective series. Ayatsuri Sakon tends to be more arc-based, with random murder mysteries. Spiral has an embedded plot. Both have fantastic animation, AS being the darker of the two.
